Google Translate downloadable thingy for Lingoes

Positive Review by DesElms
about Lingoes and Google Translate Jun 2011

I notice that, for example, Google Translate is more popular around here than Lingoes. And that's fine...

...but the reader should know that there's a Google Translate downloadable thingy for Lingoes... so one could have Lingoes and STILL have the most popular Google Translate running within it.

For whatever that's worth.

Remember, too, that Lingoes is more than just a translator. That, in fact, is what I use it for the least. For me, it's the dictionaries, thesaurus, currency converter, and some other stuff. That said, the translation part is way cool, too.

I'm actually the one who submitted Lingoes to this web site... even though I'm not its author or have anything to do with the company. It's just that I throught Lingoes was so much better than CERTAINLY all the freeware alternatives, and pretty much even most of the commercial ones, that I figured everyone should know about it.

I, personally, couldn't live without it. But I admit that it does take a little time figuring out which dictionaries and other stuff to download; then precisely the order they should be in, and then exactly how to configure every last little thing. I'm still tweaking it a little to get everything just right. It's really something, though. I actually used it to replace, believe it or not, a full commercial version of Bablefish. It's that good.

Hope that helps!

Today I discovered Lingoes Translator

Today I discovered Lingoes Translator.
After installation (many languages) it works with individually downloadable and selectable dictionaries or online translation services. I like it very much, that I get a quick translation of a text, if I copy it in the clipboard. This is really very comfortable.
